The Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team in Brackley has been granted planning permission to build an extension which joins its main reception building to another currently housing a wind tunnel.
Cllr Rebecca Breese, chairman of South Northamptonshire Council’s Planning Committee said: “This proposal is a modest addition to their overall floor space, but will give them more storage, flexible workspace and will let them tidy up their bin area.
“Mercedes are showing a long term commitment to Brackley and, if their proposals are right for the district, we will continue to do whatever we can to support them.”
The proposals come shortly after the F1 team was granted permission to build a multi-storey car park on their Reynard Park site. Mercedes say it will help them meet demands of running a successful F1 team and help secure their longevity in Brackley.
